The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 turned a lot of heads in the photography world when it was released a year ago with its cool retro form factor, hybrid viewfinder and highly-acclaimed APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor, but its $1,700 price tag entry point can be a bit of a little steep to some. But now Fujifilm has released the X-Pro 1’s little brother, the $999 Fujifilm X-E1.
The X-E1 is smaller in all dimensions compared to the X-Pro1, and this is partly due to the omission of the X-Pro1’s hybrid viewfinder. In its place is a 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder that should be comparable to Sony NEX-7’s OLED viewfinder.
Another noticeable change is the smaller 2.8” 460k dot resolution LCD screen with instead of a 3.0” a 1.23 million dot resolution LCD screen.
